I was all ready to buy the 6 40mm lte
Until I realized that it came in graphite or gold
Had my heart set on silver
My wrist is small so going up in size is not an option
Maybe August they will have it in silver

I'm glad to see the rotating bezel back but they went from titanium to stainless steel as case material. That's a significant downgrade for me working in the automotive industry and always banging my Watch 5 Pro on metal parts. Not sure why Samsung made this decision but I won't be upgrading just for that fact alone. I'll stick with my titanium, hopefully the Watch 7 brings it back. The 6 overall is just a very incremental upgrade, besides bringing the rotating bezel back, it's slightly larger screen and Samsung claimed "18%" faster processing, it's not worth upgrading if you have a 5 Pro in my opinion.

It appears that it's not an upgrade to the watch 5 pro, it's an upgrade to the watch 4 classic, which was made of steel and had a rotating bezel, as it's lighter than titanium and the watch 6 classic is already one of the heaviest watches on the market. Samsung hinted to several media outlets that the pro is going to come back in some capacity, probably as an Apple watch ultra competitor, and that will probably use titanium.

Agreed that these are barely an upgrade vs the gen 5 models though. The slightly bigger screen is nice but otherwise I'm not seeing much here.

I hated my Watch 4 because the battery life was just awful and the recharge time was terrible. It was totally inferior to my Galaxy Watch (heck, it was worse than my Galaxy Gear and Gear 2 Neo). I had it less than a month before I preordered the 5 Pro. And now they're taking a step backwards again.

I agree I love the titanium 5 pro. Black and silver stainless steele the 6 classic boring it looks like the galaxy 3 watch the one I gave to my son. Hopefully the 7 series will return in the titanium fingers cross 🤞 for now I will keep my 5 pro.
